A Wellsboro man was sentenced Wednesday to 11 12 to 23 months for assaulting two employees at Cove Prep treatment facility in Derry Township.

Edwin Tyler Polley, 20, was acting “unruly” when facility employees attempted to get him under control on Jan. 29, according to police.

Polley bit the right arm of one employee and spit in his face and mouth, police said. Another employee was kicked in the head and sustained a mild concussion.

Polley was sentenced to a consecutive five-year term of probation by Judge Rita Hathaway.
